My Name Is...Harlan Stritchko

Manager of the Highlands Ranch Mansion


About me

I'm originally from southeastern Wisconsin. I moved to Highlands Ranch with my family in 2001 while employed with the YMCA. I worked in sales for several years with United Parcel Service before joining the Highlands Ranch Metro District staff in 2012. 

My job

Each day is different. As a member of a small departmental staff, we tend to multiple functions throughout each day. Some days we are focused on facility maintenance and repair; other days it's sales-and-event planning. Others might involve working with volunteers or staff throughout the Highlands Ranch Metro District. Besides the site, the variety of tasks is what makes the work so rewarding.

What I do for fun

Raising five children in Highlands Ranch has proven to be everything we expected. The Douglas County School District is exceptional and all of my kids have been involved with a variety of educational and athletic programs from K-12. The Highlands Ranch Community Association has wonderful recreational facilities that we use year-round. However, I very much enjoy Colorado's vast offering of world-class fly-fishing!

Discovering the mansion

The Highlands Ranch Mansion, though huge in size and vast in history, is still not well known to some. So many visitors, on a daily basis, report that they had “no idea we were here.” Our staff and volunteers are discovering new facts about our past owners and facility daily. It is a great place to work and spend the day — keeping up the rustic elegance and sharing our house with the entire world.
